Not surprisingly, upon arrival we found a customer's white R33 GTR in the parking lot:
|Note interesting vented front bumper!|
|I didn't like those wheels too much though...too much hassle to keep clean|
|This photo got me thinking... do I need to darken the red lens of my diffuser LED?|
|Kunal with Nakayama-san, Chief Mechanic|
(and yes the Takumi who built the engine in my car!) at Mine's.
The man has built over 1000 RB26 engines during his career...!!!
|Thomas trying to act cool, Kunal WAS cool...|
The new NISMO Omori Factory, no longer in Omori Tokyo but in Tsuzuki-ku, Yokohama (access map here). Inside, we saw there were several cars displayed, including the original Z-Tune, but also noticed actual cars being worked on behind the glass:
|Like this Clubman Sports BNR34|
There was also a 400R, but it was slightly out of camera range, darn (and we were not allowed inside).
Of course there was the gift/parts/accessories store selling all sorts of interesting goodies:
|Not enough time, not enough money...|
|A NISMO vending machine!|
|Camshafts being used as door handles to the bathrooms!|
|And more camshafts in the bathroom!|
|Backing the car in as if it's being driven off the showroom floor!|
|Kunal found a cool T-shirt...|
|Nice clock, but why the black caliper? Need gold!|
|And of course, the $5000 carbon fiber GT-R suitcase...|
|Trunk of an R35 GT-R. And herein lies a clue to a future mod for my car...|
